Draining the CMS job queue

vendredi 17 février 2017 11:58

Because of an upgrade to the WMAgent server, we need to drain the CMS job queue. So, I'm not submitting any more batches at present and we should start running out over the weekend. If you see that you are not getting any CMS jobs (not tasks...) please set No New Jobs or stop BOINC.
I expect that the intervention will take place Monday morning, and hopefully we'll have new jobs again later that day.

Minor planet named Bernard

A minor planet in the Solar System will officially be known as Bernardbowen from today after Australian citizen science project theSkyNet won a competition to name the celestial body.

The minor planet was named by the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) in honour of their founding chairman Dr Bernard Bowen.

Bernardbowen sits in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and takes 3.26 Earth years to orbit the Sun.

The minor planet was discovered on October 28, 1991, and until now has been known as (6196) 1991 UO4.

Based at ICRAR, theSkyNet has been running since 2011 and sees citizen scientists donating their spare computing power to help Australian astronomers uncover the mysteries of the Universe.

Its 50,000-odd volunteers entered an International Astronomical Union (IAU) contest to name planets beyond our Solar System.

Project founders ICRAR also won the right to name a minor planet within our Solar System.
Bernardbowen was one of 17 minor planets to be christened today.

Other newly named minor planets include Kagura, after a traditional Shinto theatrical dance, and Mehdia, which is equivalent to the Arabic word for gift.

Dr Bowen is renowned as one of the country’s finest science administrators and has presided over scientific advances ranging from the oceans to the skies. He was instrumental in the establishment of ICRAR in 2009, and helped bring part of the Square Kilometre Array telescope to Western Australia.

A full list of the citation of the minor planets can be found at the IAU Minor Planet Circular.
Bernardbowen can be found on the Minor Planet Centre site, including an interactive showing its position in the Solar System.


The Importance of Protein Social Behavior

Which proteins are most likely to interact with other proteins, and how might these interactions affect disease, and life itself? Results from data computed by World Community Grid are being used to help create a protein sociability index, which could help future advances in biology and medicine.


Downtime Explanation

lundi 13 février 2017 12:53

Hi all, apologies for the extended downtime we had the past few days. We had a hard disk failure that, since it came over the weekend, took a bit longer to resolve than usual. We are back now and there was no data loss, however its possible some of your clients missed reporting deadlines (since we were unavailable). If you feel you lost significant credits because of this please don't hesitate to contact me. We're working on making sure similar errors in the future can be resolved quicker. For now, sorry again, and happy crunching!


Sourcefinder Beta - Attempt 2

Hi Everyone,

Earlier today we were having some issues with the hard disk size of the sourcefinder server. While I was attempting to increase the disk size, I accidentally terminated the amazon instance causing the server to be destroyed.

After a large amount of facepalming and re-installing, the server is back up with a larger hard disk at the following address: http://54.196.169.236/duchamp/.

Unfortunately all of the forum posts have been deleted along with the server, and there may be a few latent setup issues that I haven't addressed quite yet.

Before accidentally destroying everything, I did copy off some of the bug reports that people had already made in to a Trello board. This board will store all of the current issues that I'm investigating, so you can all keep track of what I'm doing. https://trello.com/b/Y3XkcXMJ/sourcefinder-public. Once I've read a bug report on the forums, I'll update that board with the relevant details and get to work on fixing it.

I also plan on posting a weekly changelog of everything I've managed to fix so far.

I'm uploading a 30GB packet of work units to the server for everyone to work on. I'll get them sent the moment I can.

I'm truly sorry about all of this, and I hope everyone will still be happy enough to participate in sourcefinder.

Sam


First Scientific Results of DENIS in the Biophysical Society 61st Annual Meeting

Dear volunteers,
Next week, I will attend the 61st Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society in New Orleans. During the conference I will present a modification of one of the currents of our model (the calcium current). This current was modified to solve some problems of the model. We decided to modify this current thanks to the results obtained in DENIS, so we can say that this is the first scientific result in cardiac electrophysiology obtained thanks to your collaboration. Thank you very much!

You computed the exploratory study to locate the part of the model that was causing the problem. Thanks to your collaboration we were able to find it and propose a solution.

We continue to work to make our heart cell model as realistic as possible, we hope we can continue to give you great news like this in which your effort is rewarded enriching science.

Thank you very much for being by our side and helping us in this and in future works.

Sincerely,
Jesús.
